Aye Aye Sailor
HMS Belfast on the Thames. A really good trip out if you are interested in anything nautical or just men in sailor suits.
I'm sure you all thought you'd escape my pictures while I'm stuck here in the U of K awaiting my next little sojourn out of the country, but no!
Here are few pictures taken along the South Bank of the Thames. The South Bank stretching from the Design museum at Butler's Wharf in the east to Vauxhall and MI6 in the west has to be one of my favourite walks in London. The fact that you can walk all the way along the riverside between the two is fantastic, unlike in the grim north of London (only joking, but south is best).
London is great city, it would be even better if the tourists could learn how to use the tube properly. If you are a foreigner and planning a trip to London, here's some tips:
Only ever stand on the right of the escalators, NEVER on the left.
Allow people off the train BEFORE you get on and move down the platform at Leicester square, do not stop as soon as you get on the platform and block the entrance, it's bloody annoying.
But enough of the moaning (as if I ever would), I'll add more London
Jewel in the Crown
Nealy a thousand years old, no wonder it's full of Yanks, there's more history in it's little finger than all of their country (excluding Native americans of course)
photos again I'm sure. You may even get lucky and I'll put some of Balham one day. 'Gateway to the south' don't you know. Peter Sellers has a lot to answer to (look it up).
